Tell me what you think — here’s a chunk of a work in progress

I know what I'm trying to do here -- but I'd rather have your unbiased comments, if you'd be so kind as to give them. I'm interested in your thoughts as a reader. This excerpt is just short of 400 words out of around 12,500 so far and maybe 20,000 or more by the time... Continue Reading →
